3. Survey on smoking at HZGD (indoor) events.

Hi Everyone. 

I would just like to get your thoughts, either way, about smoking at the HZGD presentation events. i.e. indoor events, so I suppose this would relate to the proposed environmental film screenings, etc. 

We know many of our supporters and regular attendees are smokers. 

We also have many non-smokers who regularly attend as well. 

We also understand that China is not enforcing anti-smoking regulations in most venues.     

  1. How do you feel about the idea of making the HZGD seating area non-smoking during the events held in venues that "allow" smoking?    
  2. Would it be a good idea to have a smoking break in the middle of the presentation or film screening?    
  3. For smokers, would you be willing to attend some or all events held at strictly non-smoking venues?    
  4. Any other ideas or suggestions?  

Please email us if you have strong feelings either way.   HZGD Email: hangzhougreendrinks [AT] gmail [DOT] com

Thank you!

 

4. Welcome to Andrew Hoban who is joining Lara Esser, Cady Huang and Tim Flanders as a co-organiser on the Hangzhou Green Drinks team.

Andrew's Bio:     

Born in New York City, but raised in Europe, Andrew Hoban is driven by a passion for sustainability and he is committed to provoking change. He has studied Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology ("TU Delft") in the Netherlands and now he is continuing to nurture his vision for sustainability here in China.  

Andrew is becoming very active in community, environmental, social and cultural activities in Hangzhou and beyond, so you'll probably be hearing about him in regards to other projects soon too. We certainly look forward to him adding his voice to our HZGD activities in 2014 and beyond.

 

5. World Small Hydropower Development Report 2013 (WSHPDR 2013).

HZGD's own Lara Esser, who works at the International Centre on Small Hydro Power (ICSHP) on Nanshan Road in Hangzhou was a major participant in the 2 year (!!!) production of the World Small Hydropower Development Report 2013 (WSHPDR 2013). Now you can download your very own PDF copy of the Report or the Executive Summary from:  http://www.smallhydroworld.org/
 

A world-first assessment on the global status of small hydropower

As a leading UN agency in the provision of renewable energy solutions for inclusive sustainable industrial development, UNIDO is collaborating with the International Center on Small Hydro Power (ICSHP), based in China, to develop a small hydropower knowledge portal www.smallhydroworld.org and to publish the World Small Hydropower Development Report 2013 (WSHPDR 2013). This flagship assessment of UNIDO is a world-first compilation of global small hydropower data, and will be a crucial policy and investment guide for renewable energy provision through small hydropower. It aims at identifying the world’s small hydropower development status and its potential in different countries and regions by engaging with stakeholders to share information. 

Small hydropower is one of the most suitable energy solutions for fostering inclusive sustainable development and industrialization.

Small hydropower is a mature technology that can be easily operated and maintained. It has the lowest electricity generation prices of all off-grid technologies, and has the flexibility to be adapted to various geographical and infrastructural circumstances.

Congratulations, Lara!!!
